A running order will be posted. Block times will be e-mailed ahead of time so competitors know when they will be jumping. We will also make regular announcements to alert competitors that their turn is coming up.
Crating / Parking Area
There will be parking spots setup around the pool. These parking spots are for use during the competitors' assigned block time. We are encouraging competitors to use these “block-time use only” parking spots since they will only be on site for a short time each day.
This event will be run using a 2-hour daily time block structure which allows the facility to limit the number of people on premise at one time. Each competitor will be emailed their respective 2-hour daily time blocks after the event closes.
There will be a maximum of 4 splashes a day.
Some competitors will jump Friday (for their Saturday, Sunday, or Monday jumps).
AR will run at the normal time on Friday.
Competitors may arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled block time to check in only. Should someone show up early, they are to stay in their car until their scheduled time except to check in. Parking for the next block of competitors should be further from the pool until the current block of competitors leave a parking spot open. Competitors may choose to remain parked out further if they so desire. As long as all cars are spaced appropriately apart.
Gates: All gate latches and top rails will be cleaned between each 2-hour time block of competitors.
If competitors wish to wear gloves or use a protective layer (i.e. towel, Kleenex, etc.) to open/close gates on the dock, we encourage them to provide their own protection.
There will be a table on the near side (entry side) of the dock with a bottle of hand sanitizer for EVERY person to use who will be entering the dock. This is REQUIRED before entering the dock.
Competitors are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer, wipes, etc. We WILL have hand sanitizer available near the pool entrance and porta-potty.
